In the thrilling run up to new Doctor Who, Watch TV are giving us Doctor Who weekends! Good news for any Sky, cable, Virgin or TalkTalk viewers.

They promise us repeats of new Who, plus classic episodes and documentary / entertainment shows.

Starting at 2pm on Saturday we have Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited, starting at episode 1, a half hour show all about the Hartnell years, followed at 2.30pm by Dr Who: The Aztecs, a Hartnell classic. A great intro to the first Doctor for the uninitiated.

 Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited is an exclusive BBC America produced show, screening for the first time as part of this season. With each episode, Watch have chosen a classic episode to show afterwards – here is a quick breakdown of what they have in store for us!

  • William Hartnell – The Aztecs
  • Patrick Troughton – Tomb of the Cybermen
  • Jon Pertwee – Spearhead from Space
  • Tom Baker – Pyramids of Mars

This weekend’s viewing includes a repeat of the 2010 Doctor. Who at the Proms, two documentaries with interviews from cast and crew, and a repeat showing of the Voyage of the Damned Christmas special with guest star Kylie Minogue.

This all looks like a great start to their Who season, and it looks like they have another 6 weeks of classic episodes and features planned!
